SUPTS. MEMO NO. 182
September 29, 2000
|FROM:||Jo Lynne DeMary
Superintendent of Public Instruction
|SUBJECT:||Advertisement of Speech-Language Pathology Job Opportunities at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Convention in Washington, D.C., November 15–19, 2000|
The Department of Education has secured an exhibit booth at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) convention for the purpose of recruiting qualified speech-language pathologists to public school positions in Virginia. A number of school division speech-language pathologists have volunteered to assist department staff members at the booth and speak with potential candidates.
The ASHA convention generally has 10,000–12,000 persons in attendance, including a large number of graduate students from universities in the region. Since the convention is in Washington, D.C. this year, the department recognized this as an opportunity for school divisions to recruit speech-language pathologists.
The department will prepare a handout for all exhibit visitors identifying job opportunities in Virginia school divisions and state-operated programs. Any school divisions or programs wishing to advertise their job opportunities should complete the attached advertisement form and return it by October 27, 2000, to Lissa Power-deFur, associate director, Special Education and Student Services.
If more information is needed, please contact Dr. Power-deFur at (804) 225-2818 or mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
